    Continental Sport Competition VMAX tyres GT3RS

    Has anyone tried the new Continental VMAX tyres for the RS ? They are not offically Porsche approved but the size only fits the RS (rears anyway) and Continental have said they were designed specifically for all wether use for the Porsche .

     

    Any views or news welcome.

     I would rather stick with the factory recommended tires. Optimal grip is everything in case of the GT3RS Smiley


    Re: Continental Sport Competition VMAX tyres GT3RS

    I will keep the cup tyres on for the summer but I live in scotland so plenty rain and these Continental tyres are used on the Turbo's and Gemballa , 9FF etc for thier models so cant see it being an issue.for winter use so I will give them a try. The normal Michelin sports (not cups ) are now not made and there are no Pirellis in this size anywhere in Europe apparently !!

     

    cheers

     Are you sure that the Pirelli Corsa tires are not available either Smiley They are fine in wet conditions.


    Re: Continental Sport Competition VMAX tyres GT3RS

    Have tried to get the pirellis for the last three months and they have no pans for a further production run and I cant find a dealer anywhere who has them in stock.

    The continentals were recommended to me by a Porsche Super cup team principle who uses them on his road RS and vouches for them so iam going togive them a try. Can always swap back to the Cup tyres if dont work.

    If I get them on will report back.

     

    cheers

     Now I understand. Most tires should be better in the wet than the Cups Smiley


    Re: Continental Sport Competition VMAX tyres GT3RS

     I just had the Pirelli PZero Trofeo fitted to my GT3. According to my dealer, they should be the best compromise for mixed usage (Street & Track), last longer and perform better in the wet that the Michelins. 

    I will report back after my first track day in 2011, scheduled for mid April in Dijon
